Ministry Resource Committee (MRC)

Ministry Resource Committee (MRC)

The Ministry Resource Committee (MRC) is structured to build relationships and strengthen congregations around the shared vision of the Presbytery. The MRC will offer and develop a range of resources and support (funding, partnership, training, coaching) around the priorities of our shared vision: discipleship, evangelism, pastoral care, mission, worship, community-building, and risking new ministry and mission. New worshiping communities and transformation are foundational to the resourcing work of the MRC. The MRC also supports Ministry Teams throughout the Presbytery.

MINISTRY RESOURCE HUB 
Visit us on Facebook

The Ministry Resource Hub is a resource home/hub hosted by the Ministry Resource Committee (MRC) of the Presbytery of Charlotte, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) The purpose of the MRC is to encourage, connect, and resource the congregations of the presbytery for the work that God is doing through the members and leadership of those congregations. You do not have to be a member or member church to enjoy the resources gathered there.


MRC AMBASSADORS

The Ministry Resource Committee (MRC) of Charlotte Presbytery is looking for one or up to two representatives from each church in the Presbytery to serve as an ambassador. Ambassadors represent their congregation in quarterly cluster gatherings (virtual and in person) and simply share what their church is doing and how God is at work. When opportunities for connections occur, the hope is that ambassadors will help make those connections with an ambassador from another church. There is no pre or post meeting work to be done, just time to connect and build relationships within our presbytery. If you are interested, please reach out to your Pastor or Clerk of Session.
